Flashback: Ann Coulter Warns Steve Bannon about Donald Trump’s Hires During 2016

Coulter tells it like it is.

Earlier this week, former White House adviser Steve Bannon reached out to President Donald Trump, in an apparent move to reconcile with the president. Bannon was one of the more renowned advisors in the Trump administration who received a lot of attention for his unconventional views. The former White House adviser is likely looking for Trump to pardon him for several federal criminal charges that he is currently facing.

Bannon was one of the strongest contrarian voices on the right who questioned traditional conservative dogma on free trade and immigration. His rise to prominence represented a raw, populist anger that was building within the Republican Party base. Bannon ended up leaving the Trump administration after the infamous Charlottesville rally. This left a massive void for populist voices within the Trump brain trust, which was never adequately filled with populist figures.

Most of the strong populist voices during the Trump era came from the outside. Conservative commentator Ann Coulter has been one of the leading figures trying to steer populist discourse in America.Although a harsh critic, Coulter did her best to hold President Trump accountable and watch his every move, especially personnel decisions that did not align with his America first vision. To the average pro-Trump individual, Coulter’s criticism may come off as abrasive, but it was and still is  necessary to have a viable nationalist movement.

As a reminder to her followers about how she knew that there were subversive elements in the Trump administration who wanted to gut the president’s America First agenda and pursue more traditional Republican policies, she tweeted about email correspondence she had with Bannon dating back to December 2, 2016. In light of the rapprochement between Bannon and Trump, Coulter called attention to how she warned the former White House adviser about some of the latter’s questionable staffing decisions during the early stages of his presidency.

Coulter tweeted, “No, actually, I knew Trump was betraying us pretty early on – and that it would cost him re-election. My December 2, 2016 email to Steve Bannon:”

In an email sent on December 2, 2016 with a subject line titled “ghost of christmas future”, Coulter warned then-White House adviser Bannon about some of Trump’s hiring decisions.

She first noted that “the fact that Trump is even CONSIDERING rep. Mccaul (rubio in the house) for homeland — and is NOT considering kobach— tells me we’re not getting any major deportations, no removal of refugees, no e-verify, no end to end anchor babies… and trump will be dead.

also, “mad dog” isn’t going to build a wall.”

She was referring to Texas Congressman Michael McCaul, a known mass migration booster and a potential nominee for the head of the Department of Homeland Security. United States Marine Corps General James Matthis would be Trump’s first Secretary of Defense, who ended up turning out to be a Deep State hack. On the other hand, Kris Kobach is a nationally recognized immigration hawk, who gained fame for implementing some of the stiffest voter ID standards in the nation during his time as Secretary of State.

The Trump administration was successful in implementing several administrative changes that limited immigration and also did not get involved in any nation-building engagements like previous administrations.

Nevertheless, Coulter’s incisive suggestions still have use for future Republican administrations. The new GOP should follow Coulter’s pro-migration restriction suggestions if it wants to not only remain politically relevant, but also protect the integrity of America’s political system.

POLL: Republican Voters are Most Concerned About Illegal Immigration, Democrats Most Concerned About… Republicans!

The GOP needs to lead on strong immigration policy.

Published

New polling from Echelon Insights reveals that while Republicans are most concerned about illegal immigration and left-wing anarcho-tyranny, Democrats are most concerned about heritage Americans.

The polling, which was released earlier in the week, asked respondents to identify political issues most of personal concern to them. Illegal immigration topped the list for Republicans. The Left’s attempt to abolish police and establish anarcho-tyranny in major US cities came in second place, with high taxes coming in third.

Questionable allusions to omnipresent ‘socialism’ and insinuations that Biden is a Communist failed to resonate with middle-class voters in the November presidential election and Georgia’s January Senate runoff election. While the issue remains a real concern of Republicans, Biden hasn’t implemented socialism. It’s unclear how much influence the socialist Left of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have over his government.

However, his thorough gutting of immigration enforcement, administrative abolition of ICE, and termination of wall construction are very real and are tantamount to no less than an embrace of open borders unprecedented in American history.

Democrats are most unified in their hatred of Donald Trump supporters, and supposed white nationalism. The poll results for Democrats reveal that the Left has adopted a full, partisan-tribal sectarian approach to American politics.

Republicans need to deliver for their voters and hone in on a pro-American approach to deterring illegal immigration, and deporting those that infiltrate the borders. President Donald Trump originally ran on border security and stopping illegal immigration as his signature campaign issue in the 2016 election, promising to build a ‘big, beautiful’ wall to safeguard the border. In great part because of President Trump’s policy successes on illegal immigration, conservatives gradually started focusing elsewhere. However, now that Biden’s spurring the largest ‘caravan’ style wave of immigration in decades by gutting his ‘America First’ immigration policies, Republicans need to provide a real opposition, and pressure him into enforcing immigration law where they’re able.

It remains to be seen if the GOP will fight for the priorities of its voter base, or focus purely on entertainment-style reality show politics.
